blast from the past next gen style
First off the negative about this game the load times are bad and the game can be glitch have had it freeze up a couple times. The good the game play is like God of War but you get fist heavy light attacks and meat clevers, boards with nails and QTE kill moves which require quick inputso anyone that puts this game down must not like god of war if they do they are a hypocrite. The graphics are good they set the game mood real well but do not break any new ground at times they can be a bit bland. The sound is good but me personally I don't care for the music but the voice acting is as good as any game out there. A major plus is unlocking splatter house 12 and 3 the classic games. All in all a good game worth the money some how I lucked out getting it for 3 bucks from a going out of business sale but I would've paid 20. Buy it if you like GOW or Darksiders. Load times a glitches are small problems and over look able.
Better than the reviews! :]
I was at GameStop picking up Mass Effect 2, when I saw this for very cheap. I had a bunch of credit left over and decided why not. I had heard all the bad press and reviews about this game. I on the other hand, like to play something before I make judgement. After playing through and getting the platinum, I can say that it was not what I expected. It surprised me how so many could bash such a good game. And to all those people on here that tore it apart you obviously haven't played some of the games I have. (18 Platinums and counting, including Fallout 3 and Demon Souls!) There is an ocean of games out there that are worse than this. First the negative, like so many others have said, the gameplay does get stale and repetitive after a while. But I felt driven due to the upgrade system and in the end it's a beat-em' up. What do you expect? The camera angles can get annoying too but it only truly bothered me fiercely twice. Now the positive, the soundtrack, gore, and humor is amazingly wicked. The terror mask talking to Rick is some of the funniest lines I've ever heard in a game. I have a twisted sense of humor and I fell in love with the over-the-topness of it all. The fighting has countless combos to learn and master. Not to mention, you can unlock the 3 previous Splatterhouses of yore. I wouldn't recommend it to everyone but if you are a fan of dark humor, metal, nudity, gruesome kills, and gallons of blood, then this game is for you.
A Disgrace To A Legendary Franchise
When I heard they made a Next-Gen Splatterhouse game, like all die hard fans of this LEGENDARY horror series I wuz excited as all heck. Sadly after playing this game I wuz shocked and appauled at how horrible this game was. I wuz also very confused how it wuz even possible to screw up such a amazing game. It wuz if they had gone outta there way to make this game as bad as possible. Horrid voice acting, Horrible and boring gameplay, not scary in the least, they completely messed up the awesome story. I tried as hard as I could to like this game but I simply could not it wuz just that bad. This game has zero redeemable qualities to it. Do not buy this game even if you are a DIE HARD splatterhouse fan like myself you will get deeply disapointed.
If you're looking for a mindless brawler that drenches the screen in blood , Splatterhouse delivers . If you're looking for a game that's fun to play and doesn't stagnate in it's combat design in the first few minutes of play , I would not recommend this , You would want to look elsewhere .
Nice little beat'em up
This game is pretty awesome. Its a great beat'em up and kept me playing. Though i do have some complaints. The platforming parts of the game i found kinda stiff. I also found myself beating one or two phases at a time as the senseless beating the stuffing out of monsters got repetitive. These things are kinda major but really didnt stop me from enjoying my time. I dont think ill ever forget the first time i cut a monster and "juice" spewed everywhere.
People say this game is bad but I dont agree. The game is hard but good. I cannot stop playing it even after I beat it. The gameplay is great, the action is insane. The weapons are great and i really recommend it to hardcore gamers.
Great Remake of a Great Classic
I didn't pick up Splatterhouse on day 1 just because of the mixed reviews, I kept hearing it was "average" at best, i finally said "forget that" i loved the old version so i decided to give it a chance and i'm so glad i did. This game is a blast from beginning to end, it's a next gen "action/ beat em up" it wont win any awards like "final fantasy" or "heavy rain" but if you like over the top action you'll love Splatterhouse.
give this game a chance.
i love this game.the blood and gore is insane.if u love bloodie games then this game is for u. the loading times only take 20 sec. not 40 like u hear.i havent been able to put it down.a must have game for ps3 owners.tf u take the time and look where the game came from.u ll see its came a long way.
A Great Game With a Great Price
NOTE: I BOUGHT THIS GAME ONLINE WHEN IT WAS 39.99 AND CAME WITH THE TERROR MASK. THE PRICE IS NOW 59.99 WITH THE TERROR MASK. As for the terror mask statue, you will NOT find a higher quality bonus with a game. it is incredibly detailed, and also is heavier than expected. As for the game, Splatterhouse is your classic, Beat em' up game that obviously wont win GOTY, but it is a great game to play when all you want to do is to kill some monsters. The combat can get a little dull at some parts, but the constant environmental changes keep you interested.
when i played this game i wasn't sure if i ws playing ps3 it looks like ps1 or 2. i feel sad for every 1 who bought this game .
